Hybrid US/UK pale ale.
With an abundance of hops and a sweet caramel backbone, this is a true session beer. A grassy, nutty and flavourful malt body is balanced by citrusy hops and a touch of spice. Clocking in at 34IBU’s, this beer is just bitter enough to keep the hopheads coming back without being crushingly dry or astringent.

Note: Also available dry hopped as Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy (AAXH).

On tap at The Burger bar, golden-amber-copper color, with a white head, nice fruity, piney, leafy, floral hop nose, with some faint toasted, caramel, biscuity malt note, and some citrusy, lemon, grapefruit english hoppy accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp earthy flowery, leafy, grassy, piney, hop character at first, with a zesty, lemon, grapefruit peel, cedary backbone, and a light biscuity, toasty maltiness undertone, leading towards a nice leafy, grassy, piney, citsusy hop bittering finish.

Decent and very drinkable beer. Nice balance of prominent malt character with a good, american-style hop profile. Not hoppy enough for an IPA or APA in my mind but nice.

On tap: Pours a roily copper colored ale in the tumbler, smallish cap lasts and laces. Decent aroma; pungent cereals mingle with fruity esters and spicey-grassy hopping, some musty earthiness. Flavor is well defined, deep bready malting balanced off with spicy-piney hops, fruity...mild character, soft mouth feel,...finishes long wet and bitter with an extended wet metal taste. Nicely done pale ale in the old Burton style.

At Gambrinus Bistro. A hazed copper with a thin beige ring. Citrus and herbal hoppy nose, with bread, toast, and dark fruits as well.A decidedly fruity sweet flavour profile with medium bitterness overall. Medium bodied, quite creamy and soft. Long bitter finish with a metallic twang lingering.Good effort.

I tried this beer on tap on April 29, 2011 at ’C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent golden copper colour with a thin white head that laced well. The aroma was citrus hops, caramel malt, and alittle spice. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour slightly sweet with grapefruity hops. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Pours clear golden with thin white head. Like others here, the word "sessionable" immediately jumped to mind. Dry cereal malt with a bit of a caramel kick to it. Hops are the main story - really grassy/herby. Some citrus. Big bitter kick on the finish.

Cask at Burger Bar. Dry-Hopped Cask version. Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size long lasting foamy white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, lots of resiny hops. Flavour is hoppy with an average length bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I hope they can have this on cask year-round.

On tap at Only Cafe. Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma is green, citric and grassy hops and caramel malt. Flavour has same fresh hops and a decent caramel malt base. Moderate bitterness in finish. Simple but good.
